20th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards announced: ‘The Power of the Dog’ wins Best Picture, ‘Dune’ bags 6 [WATCH CEREMONY WITH 16 EXCITING ACCEPTANCE SPEECHES]

The Power of the Dog” won Best Picture at the 20th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards on March 16, the day before the start of Oscar voting. The Western won three other trophies, too: both Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for Jane Campion and Best Supporting Actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee. “Dune” was the big winner, with six victories in the creative categories. Scroll down for our complete results, and watch the video above to see our complete awards ceremony featuring acceptance speeches from most of the winners.

Almost 2,700 Gold Derby readers voted for the winners in 22 categories, and they were clearly impressed by the technical and artistic prowess of Denis Villeneuve‘s adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s sci-fi novel. “Dune” claimed Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Production Design, Best Original Score, Best Sound, and Best Visual Effects.

Our voters spread the wealth elsewhere with each of the 11 other categories going to a different movie, including Best Actor to Andrew Garfield (“Tick, Tick … Boom!”), Best Actress to Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”), and Best Supporting Actress to Ariana DeBose (“West Side Story”).

“Cruella” and “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” were the only films to beat “Dune” for craft awards, claiming Best Costume Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling, respectively.

“Licorice Pizza” got its due for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s writing in the Best Original Screenplay race. That film’s star, Alana Haim, won Best Breakthrough Performance. That award is for the year’s worth of work, whether it’s one movie or a dozen, so Haim’s victory doesn’t technically count towards that film’s total.

Though woefully underappreciated by the SAG and Critics Choice Awards, the cast of “Mass” claimed our prize for Best Ensemble.

Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell‘s “No Time to Die” theme claimed Best Original Song.

“Flee” was nominated for Best Animated Feature, Best Documentary Feature, and Best International Feature. But our readers went three different ways with “Flee” winning the Documentary race while “Encanto” took the Animated Feature award and “Drive My Car” claimed International Feature.

So will Oscar voters take our advice when picking their winners? The Academy Awards have agreed with our Best Picture for the last two years: “Parasite” (2019) and “Nomadland” (2020). However, the Gold Derby Awards and Oscars diverged for five years in a row before that — get it together, academy! How do you think our winners will compare this year, and do you think our voters made the right calls? Discuss this and more with your fellow movie fans here in our forums.
